Is there a flood warning plan?

Yes. A gauge at the stormwater pump station monitors the river level and provides notification to Lake County personnel. If necessary, Lake County will contact residents by phone when the river approaches a high-water level, and again if an evacuation order is issued.  Such order may result in the closing of roads and emergency shut-off or suspension of utilities or other services to avoid risks to persons, property, and infrastructure. 

Water will rise very quickly if the levee overflows or is breached. Make sure your family has a plan in case of an emergency. Before an emergency happens, sit down together and decide how you will get in contact with each other, where you will go, and what you will do in an emergency. Keep a copy of this plan in your emergency supply kit or another safe place where you can access it if flooding occurs.
